White Privilege Conference Global - Toronto

Proudly diverse and intentionally inclusive, Ryerson University’s Office of the Vice-President, Equity and Community Inclusion (OVPECI) hosted The White Privilege Conference Global - Toronto (WPC Global - Toronto).  Held in May 2018, it explored Canadians’ challenges with privilege and oppression.  The White Privilege Conference is an annual symposium in the United States.  The OVPECI's event was the first time the conference was held in Canada. 

The event helped us all engage openly in honest, critical, solutions-based discussions that addressed obstacles that focus on, and go beyond race. By popular demand, here are video clips from our conference keynote speakers.
